The Brick House Upland was built in 1915 and has seen many changes since it was first constructed. We became the owners in July 2018 with the distinct intent to update the house and turn it into a short term rental that could serve the local community and specifically our neighbor Taylor University.
After years of student rentals The Brick was in need of some serious love. The kitchen and bathroom were a total gut job. Out came the boiler and old radiators and in came central heat and air. All new plumbing, flooring, paint, some new doors and windows, along with more than a few hiccups along the way brought us to the end. Finally, a flurry of Mel's design touches brought the first floor renovation to completion 14 weeks after we started.
The second floor awaits future updates and remains closed for now. We hope that this space is a good mix of the old and new, keeping the historic feel with the comforts of today.
